O.B. Hurricane Sally roadside debris pickups end March 16
Orange Beach’s Hurricane Sally roadside debris pickup operations for residential properties will end on March 16.
After March 16, removal of large debris will be at the expense of the property owner, according to the city.
To help expedite the process, separate debris for service. Vegetative debris like tree limbs need to be separate from construction and demolition materials like drywall and carpet. White goods, such as appliances, will be picked up as well. Keep debris away from storm drains, low power lines, other utilities and mailboxes.
Commercial-generated waste, such as new construction, cannot – and will not – be picked up by the city debris contractor. That is the responsibility of the business or contractor.
As of Feb. 3, approximately 397,000 cubic yards of debris from the city right-of-ways has been removed. That’s equivalent to 20,000 dump trucks, which would stretch about 91 miles if parked end to end. Collection totals included 31,000 cubic yards of marine debris, 21 vessels removed by the city (out of roughly 625 displaced vessels, of which nearly all were retrieved by boat owners), 20,000 cubic yards of trail debris and 5 units of white goods (refrigerators, stoves, water heaters, washers/dryers, etc.).
